The zipline madness that seems to have gripped almost every tourist town in Central America has not bypassed Antigua. If you want to monkey around, zipping from tree to tree, your best bet is Antigua Canopy Tours (tel. 4010-6592, www.antiguacanopytours.com, $50–75).
For the ultimate adventure, try its Canyon Express tour across a canyon in two stages (520 and 430 meters long) while dangling 150 meters above the ground. The zipline tour is located on the property of Finca Filadelfia, near Jocotenango.
